7:16am
sarah palin's new book is already a best seller but it doesn't officially hit the bookstores until tomorrow. some of what she's written has already been leaked and that is stirring up a lot of controversy. cbs news correspondent randall pink stop has the latest. randall, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. though sarah palin talks about her role in gofring alaska in her book it's her elevation to the national sustaining as john mccain's running mate and her clashes with campaign staffers that will likely make this a real page turner. among the moments sarah palin writes about, friction with senior mccain strategist steve schmidt. >> she is uncomfortable with his language at one point. he seems to be cussing in front of her children. >> reporter: "wall street
7:17am
journal" reporter peter wallsten reviewed palin's "going rogue." >> her image was battered after that campaign. >> she's going to have broad appeal across the country. >> reporter: during the campaign, schmidt championed palin on "the early show," but in a phone interview on sunday, schmidt called palin's book fiction saying it's not true. >> certainly some of the staff that was assigned to her did not do her a great service. >> reporter: but ed goeas who was program director at last year's gop convention says palin erect election of events are accurate. >> a unique kind of style that connected with people out there, and i think that was contrary to necessarily where they were trying to take her as a candidate. >> reporter: soon of a her her book hits the shelves, palin will hit the road on a tour some say is an effort to re-establish herself ahead of the 2012 election. >> she's taking a tour of small towns in mid-sized cities where
7:18am
her base lives and the point right now is just to sell as many pooks books as possible. >> reporter: palin's book tour begins this week in michigan. a state that the mccain campaign pulled out of against palin's wishes about. that makes it a perfect place strategy igss agree to prove that sarah palin is ready for a future campaign. >> we'll find out. all right. randall pinkston thank you so much. joining us now is cbs news chief washington correspondent and host of "face the nation" bb sheafer. good morning. it really is amazing how much attention has been paid to this book and it hasn't enhit the stores yet in large part. what do you make of all of the criticism in this book especially focused on the mccain campaign? >> well, this is sarah palin's turn to get even as it were. she came under this intense criticism all during the campaign and now she's giving her version of why she didn't succeed as a candidate. i mean, i don't think it's going to work.
7:19am
it's kind of like a baseball player going into a slump and blaming the manager or blaming the bat boy or blaming the fans or something. you know it makes for provocative reading. i think she'll sell a lot of books. but i don't think it's going to help re-establish her as a political candidate. my guess is she's not ever going to run for anything and i think if she did, i don't think she would get very far. >> really? >> no. i mean what's she going to say? let's not overlook the fact that she had to leave the governor's office in alaska because that was too much for her. you can imagine her going through a primary with an opponent? what would she say? when the going to gets tough, i'm ready to quit? that is not how one builds a political base. i think she's going to sell a lot of books. i think she'll be a great attraction out as an amusement. she's interesting, she's a
7:20am
celebrity. but i can't imagine that she has much future in pot ticks. i really don't. >> it's so interesting because, for instance in this house race up in the 23rd district one of the most important endorsements for that rogue candidate up there was from sarah palin. she's very popular among the tea party set. do you not think this is part of a growing base of folks from which we'll as kreptd into more power in the republican party? >> the republican party is very split right now as you know and you have that segment, most let pipe on the right, but you also have candidates like mike huckabee who ran the last time out who generally made a good imprerks someone who won the iowa caucuses. she will not be the only person who comes at it from the right if she should decide to run. but i think the purpose here for sarah palin right now is to sell some books and to try to sell
7:21am
her side of the story. one of the problems you have, though, when you start taking on campaign aides, people don't mow who these people are, you know. and so she's fighting against people that most people don't know who they are. it will sell book but i don't see it going beyond that. >> bob schieffer, thanks for getting up early for us. we appreciate it. up next a heart stopping moment at an outdoor safari as a lion opens a car door. we'll tell you what happens when we come back. >> announcer: this portion of "the early show" sponsored by walmart. christmas costs less at walmart. save money, live better. walmart. this season you can make your home look like a picture in a magazine with the limited edition better homes and gardens holiday collection now at walmart. get unbeatable prices on the entire line of better homes and gardens furnishings, like a festive 12-piece dinnerware set for only $25.

8:40am
women buy 85% of whether's sold. so it matters what they think. >> and this half truth principle, what's the important take away here? >> the big difference is that the half truth is what a woman says. a whole truth is what she actually does or believes or buys. >> and so often when we're requiring and asking questions about all kinds of things even questions we might ask on the show, what we're really getting instead of the whole truth is a half truth. >> i'd like to position i'm giving you the whole truth, but it is that -- that refwleks answer, what you're whethering to admit. >> so you've created an acronym that has five parts to it that help really explain this, and the acronym is g.a.m.e.s. and the first one is good intentions. >> right. good intentions. women are hopeful and optimistic and they like to present themselves as want to go do the right thing. i want to be healthy, i want to exercise who are. we say all that suv. >> approval seeking would be the a. >> i want to be liked, i want to fit in i'd like it give you an answer so you'll like me.

8:42am
people feel good, but the truth is sf we're paying money for beauty product, we want to look better. if we want to look the same, why are bother. >> so what's a company that took the half truth and exploited it? >> procter & gamble with olay. women had spend the money if they think the results will come. >> if you're a marketer and you're out there sort of -- if you can accumulate this sort of get a handle on this what's the most important thing marketers should keep in mind when they are trying to market to women? >> i think they better listen better. because women can give these half truths so easily. it's such a short cut. that a marketer wants to hear what he or she wants to hear and they'll make a big mistake and find their sales can be sab tamged. >> so interesting p the book is beautifully had out. that's not a half truth. and it really is really interesting stuff. thank you so much. >> thank you.
